Moye's flag-draped casket was escorted from a mortuary to the church by a solemn procession of California and Nevada Highway Patrol police vehicles and motorcycles.

Moye worked for CHP since 2017 and his family says that was his dream job.

Some NHP troopers were at the memorial service to pay their respects and be part of the honor guard.
